Create Complex Lattices in Seconds

Lattice generation in nTopology is now faster than ever before, thanks to GPU acceleration.

Preview design changes in real-time and rebuild even the most complex lattices in seconds. This technology breakthrough saves you days of design and engineering time each month.

Performance-Driven Lattices for Advanced Engineering

nTopology enables you to control lattice parameters at every point in space using Field-Driven Design

Optimize your lattice structures to exceed your performance targets. Generate parts with advanced lattice structures driven by simulation results, test data, or engineering formulas.

Save Time with Design Automation

In nTopology, you design processes, not just parts. In other words, you don’t have to start designing from scratch every time you begin a new project. 

With design automation and nTopCL — nTopology’s Command-Line Interface — you can set up massive simulation-based Design of Experiments or batch process whole product families without any manual work.

How to Accelerate FE Simulation of Lattices using Homogenization

Selecting a suitable lattice unit cell during design is not an easy process. Simulations are needed to predict their behavior before testing — both are expensive. 

Homogenization can significantly accelerate the earlier design stages. Instead of simulating the whole lattice, you can approximate its effective material properties based on the behavior of a single lattice cell.
